Glorious Things of You Are Spoken
A Psalm of lthe Sons of Korah. A Song.
87 On mthe holy mount nstands the city he founded;
2 the Lord oloves the gates of Zion
more than all the dwelling places of Jacob.
3 pGlorious things of you are spoken,
O qcity of God. Selah
4 Among those who rknow me I mention sRahab and Babylon;
behold, Philistia and Tyre, with tCush1—
“This one was born there,” they say.
5 And of Zion it shall be said,
“This one and that one were born in her”;
for the Most High himself will uestablish her.
6 The Lord records as he vregisters the peoples,
“This one was born there.” Selah
7 wSingers and xdancers alike say,
“All my ysprings are in you.”
